Obviously this thread is seriously making me rethink my philosophy on this, but...
I have never pre-washed anything for my kids or my family or myself, nor do I recall my parents ever doing this for us...my mom did wash a bunch of onsies for DD during the first week, but the rest I have just opened up the gifts and put them on her.
I have never had any reaction to new clothes, nor has DS or DH and so far neither has DD.
I have never thought about it before...but I am thinking now.
So...for those who wash EVERYTHING before you wear it, does that go for Dry clean only too? Do you take things to the cleaners before you use them? Do you have quilts and duvet covers dry cleaned before using them?
I seriously can say with all certainty and sincerity this has NEVER occurred to me before now.
